Steven Levine & Andrew Ford’s Directing Reel
Captain Hippo’s own Steve and Andrew, after YEARS of working together, finally edited a reel. Show your friends (who are rich.)
Take a look you dumbs.
Postin again. You know, in case you need someone to paint your house or direct comedy for you.
Anonymous said: I can't believe you still have doubts about writing. Should someone behind you take that as a sign that "doubt is always gonna be there, so just forget about it" or "doubt is always gonna be there, embrace it"?
I can’t speak for other writers, but as for me, I somehow simultaneously believe I am more talented than most other people and also that I am a complete and total fraud who is unqualified to even spray aerosol cans into bowling shoes. And depending on the exact moment when you talk to me, I will either have the confident exuberance of a toddler climbing a bookshelf or the abject self-loathing of a dog pooping in public.
Because the real truth is there are so many people smarter than me and more talented than me and more driven than me and luckier than me. But another real truth is that I am also smarter than a lot of people and more talented than a lot of people and more driven than a lot of people and luckier than a lot of people.
And I believe that just as much as I doubt it’s true.
So yes. Doubt is always going to be there. But you can’t just forget about it (it makes you humble and hungry). And you can’t just embrace it (it makes you weak and boring).
You have to do both.
And also neither.
This is a funny series by a comedian I had never heard of til today. OK, that’s it. BY.

“It seems that the more I tried to make my life about the pursuit of art, the more money controlled my life: collecting unemployment insurance, the humiliation of borrowing money from friends and family, tossing and turning at night while trying to figure out how to pay the rent. To survive I had to work hard jobs and afterwards I’d feel too tired and too stressed to paint. It’s very hard to create under those circumstances. Creativity is a delicate process. Often times I wonder if I should have just pursued a career for the first half of my life, obtained some degree of financial security, and then transitioned into art.”
